Delhomme did a little bit of everything for the Raiders as a sophomore, rushing for 827 yards, racking up 575 yards as a receiver, and also recording 61 tackles and eight interceptions as a defensive back. The 6-foot-1 track athlete was named VHSL Class 4 First Team All-State as both a receiver and DB, and was also named the Region 4A Defensive Player of the Year.

    2025 Virginia safety Messiah Delhomme has been on Ohio State’s radar for about five weeks.

    The four-star prospect was first contacted by the Buckeyes’ coaching staff last month and was told OSU had interest in him, and wanted him to make a gameday visit in Columbus. Delhomme attended the Buckeyes’ final home game of the 2023 season last week and watched OSU’s 37-3 win over Minnesota. He left town with a scholarship offer to play for Ohio State, with the offer coming from Ryan Day himself.

    “It was a very exciting and enjoyable moment,” Delhomme told Eleven Warriors of receiving his OSU offer. “(Coach Day) didn’t really get too much into detail, but we were talking about how I’d be a really good fit for the program and how campus and the atmosphere were.”

    Delhomme also spent time with OSU safeties coach Perry Eliano on the visit and had a productive conversation.

    “He was talking to me about how I’d be a great fit in the DB room and how I’d be treated like family if I came to Columbus,” Delhomme said. “He also told me some overall things about the school.”

    Per 247Sports’ composite rankings, Delhomme is considered the 224th-ranked prospect and the 16th-best safety in the 2025 class. The 6-foot-1, 196-pound prospect has 16 Division I offers, including Alabama, Florida State, Michigan, Liberty, James Madison, Maryland, NC State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia. While OSU is primarily recruiting him as a safety, some of his offers from other schools are as a wide receiver or running back.

    “(Ohio State) is definitely in my top three,” Delhomme said. “The way the defense is, I really like how they fly around to the ball and make plays. I really like the campus and everybody was really friendly. My visit was a really good experience.

    Delhomme is a two-way player for Warwick High School (Newport News, Virginia), where he was an All-District selection on both offense and defense this season. In his sophomore year, Delhomme registered 61 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a whopping eight interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns. Offensively, he recorded 74 carries for 827 yards and 12 rushing touchdowns while catching 28 passes for 575 yards and three receiving scores.

    “I’m able to make plays wherever coaches need me to,” Delhomme said.

    Delhomme said he hopes to make a college decision sometime in the summer before the start of his senior year. He plans on making another visit to OSU sometime this spring.
